Katherine Heigl: Same-sex marriage makes me cry

Katherine Heigl absolutely loved making out with Alexis Bledel in their new film Jenny’s Wedding.

The 36-year-old actress plays the titular role in forthcoming indie flick Jenny’s Wedding, a movie centreing on lesbians who decide to tie the knot.

The United States Supreme Court ruled in favour of same-sex marriage on June 26, making the act legal across America, and Katherine couldn’t be happier with the decision.

“I get very emotional and I cried,” Katherine told Variety of how she reacted after learning of the Supreme Court’s ruling. “I was very grateful — grateful that our country has seen the light and is encouraging others to do the same.”

America has become the 21st country in the world to have legalised gay marriage.

Jenny’s Wedding was selected to be featured at Outfest this year. Outfest is a film and television festival hosted in Los Angeles annually which is committed to telling the stories of the LGBT community through onscreen entertainment.

And Katherine is honoured to see her film featured at the event.

“Doing this at Outfest feels like the right time and the right place,” she noted. “I cried when I read the script and then I cried again. Every time I watch the movie, I cry.”

Alexis Bledel portrays Kitty in the picture, the soon-to-be wife of Katherine’s character Jenny.

And Katherine absolutely enjoyed locking lips with Alexis while filming scenes for the comedy.

“I loved making out with Alexis,” she said.

Jenny’s Wedding reaches American theatres on July 31.
